Roughly 3-4 years ago, I lost pretty much my entire music collection that I had been collecting since 1997 or so. I tried every trick I knew (and a few I didn't), but it was completely unrecoverable. Since then, I have re-found most of the music I used to have (at least, the ones I *remember* I had), but there are still holes in my collection that bother me.
In particular, there is one piece of music I've been trying to find for I don't know how long now. While I can still remember almost all of the actual song itself, I can remember very little actual information *about* the piece:
- It was pre-98.
- It was from either an anime or a video game.
- It had the word 'Mission' somewhere in the title.
- It was track 3? Or maybe mission 3? There was a 3 involved.
- The piece could be divided into three sections: a 1st and 3rd movement in F major involving mostly acoustic guitar work (with the third being mostly a mirror of the first), and a 2nd that was orchestral, in D major (with a different theme).
Numerous searches involving Yahoo!, Google, and Live have revealed nothing useful, and like all trivial unsolved mysteries drives me absolutely nuts. Strangely enough, it wasn't until a couple of weeks ago when I was showing a friend some music notation software I had downloaded that the idea was ventured: "Why don't you just make a MIDI of it and see if anyone recognizes it?"
I'm working on that now. Hopefully, I can start posting it soon in various places and see if I find anything.
(I wonder if I've posted something about this before. Hmm)
